    Don’t know if I’m allowed to post photos but I won’t so if anyone does decide to go they can see everything for themselves :) it’s a small but cute, quaint place. The art there was so beautiful and something about it was just so mesmerizing! The workers there were super nice! Would recommend.

    This museum is off the beaten tourist track but definitely worth a visit. They pack a lot of fascinating art into two rooms, so it's easy to take in one visit. We saw the exhibition Memory Palaces, and there were so many beautiful pieces by self taught artists from around the Americas and Europe. I look forward to returning, hopefully soon, and also visiting their satellite gallery in Queens

    Really good place to take out of town guests, especially if they have kids. Reasons: The museum is small, no one will get tired. The permanent collection is really interesting, you’re guaranteed beautiful, fascinating things to see. Because it’s folk art, your guests need not be concerned that they “don’t understand” art. It’s accessible and no one will be intimidated. It’s right by the park. Finish up here and go right over and have a picnic. You can even take a horse carriage here if you’re feeling extravagant! But if you have no out of town guests, come here by yourself, especially on a rainy midweek morning, and have the place to yourself. It’s one of the best things you can do in midtown.

    Get in for free, which is great and it’s a small museum with 3 exhibitions spaces. One story but packs a good show inside. It was pretty good. Really cool bones of dinosaurs and old creatures from the science illustration exhibition. Siri said the weather is clear and it was. You can put your stuff away in a cubby which is free. It is never crowded but never empty. The gift shop is fun and a decent size. If you’re ever in the area it’s great because it’s free so you can just walk in.

    What an amazing place. Our group had a tou guide who told us many details about quilting. We had a hands on activity that allowed us to make a single panel. The hanging quilts are beautiful and will be there for three more weeks. The museum is free and has a great gift shop.
